HELP… My Email Was Hijacked!
The first thing to do is relax. It’s quite likely that your account wasn’t actually compromised. Sometimes spammers use your email address without actually hacking into your email account. It is relatively easy to “spoof” an email address.
But just to be safe, I recommend that you change your password. In the worst case, hackers can gain full access to your email account and major trouble ensues.
